is beginning to take shape around, yes, of course, the repeal of obama care. and last night at a heritage foundation defund obama care event in texas, senator ted cruz tried to rally conservatives. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean, nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever, ever give up his principals so republicans have to give up theirs. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink! >> by the way, cruz was heckled at that event by people saying they wanted health care as well, but there were more supporters, as he said, than there were hecklers. earlier, though, former u.s. senator jim demint and president of the heritage foundation sa
increases even before there was such a thing as obama care. if you look at the specific fees cited by u.p.s. as a reason for dropping them they are a pittance compared to what the rise in health care has been. it raises the question to me just because the possibility, because they are saying it's because obama care, maybe it's an opportunity for the company to save some money and pin it on something controversial. >> we should consider that this sort of thing should have been anticipated and very easy to blame the companies but in fact the policy may be flawed. a lot of companies, large franchise companies saying that their franchisees will most likely once obama care kicks in reduce flows fewer hours because of the health care costs. you would think when they were planning -- when they were planning for this they would have anticipated these sorts of things. there's this poll in july that the "wall street journal" did, the commission showed 47% of the american people is against obama care at this point. support for obama care is down to 34%. then these stories come out. you get the sen
again when it comes to delayy obama care is being the employe mandate and now the president has personally intervened to allow the government to continue helping members of congress and their staff when it comes to paying their premiums. members of congress were furious they would soon be forced to pay thousands of dollars -- >> hold on. members of congress, harold, were furious that they were going to be held to this same law that they passed, right? >> odd. >> it is odd. >> they got so angry. >> a lot of odd things. >> the president goes up to see the democrats this week. what is the first thing they're yelling at him about? >> what about my premiums? >> you mean we're going to have to live by the laws that we passed on the american people? >> we're going to have to worry about the same things our constituents are forced to worry about, please? >> they take their vacations -- >> five weeks. >> usually when things are just like happening they leave. they would soon be forced to pay thousands of dollars in additional costs through obama care's insurance marketplace. some warned
evidence and now, of course, what comes next, barack obama is now moving closer to military strike. "boston globe" also talking about a coming military strike. it looks like it's probably going to happen. let's get to news. >> top u.s. officials now say chemical weapons were used in da masses cas and the president is considering a limited military strike on select targets inside the country. yesterday u.n. inspectors visited the site of the attacks and though low expectations for what their probe will uncover, secretary of state john kerry says there is little doubt as to what happened there. >> what we saw in syria last week should shock the contents of the world. p it defies any code of more reality. let me be clear. the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. the reported number of victims the reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, the firsthand accounts from humanitarian organizations, these all strongly indicate that everything these images are already screaming at us, is real
in part this, one of the least attractive legacies of barack obama will be the way he empowered freshman senators to believe they were only one or two good speeches away from the presidency. right now the show horses of the united states senate are rand paul of kentucky, ted cruz of texas, and marco rubio of florida. all preparing for a 2016 presidential bid. all making visits to iowa. they're the new faces of the republican party. really, really new. the three of them have an average age of 45 and an average tenure in washington of 1.9 years. that's not necessarily a bad thing. >> no. it's awful. >> paul and cruz in particular tend to drive other republican senators nuts. asked by the new republic whether he would support rand paul or hillary clinton for president, mccain laughed and said, it's going to be a tough choice. actually, it wouldn't. if rand paul got nominated for president, mccain would be the honorary national chairman of republicans for hillary. >> you know, this is one of the things that, mike, has driven me crazy about republicans that have been talking about marco rubio
. it is a folly built on a fantasy that doing this is going to get the approval of the senate and barack obama. it is never going to happen. so you are going to shut down the government for no reason. yesterday mitt romney weighed in on it. >> the former presidential candidate told a group of donors that the plan led by conservatives would hurt national security. that doesn't make it easy for some republican lawmakers like north carolina congressman. >> this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? i want yes or no. no. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservative values. >> this guy has probably voted to get rid of obama care 20 times. i mean, they take the vote every week. >> 40 times. >> they voted 40 times. so you now have this happening all over america. i said it the other day. i know there are stupid people on the internet and they have to do something. >> they don't like your pants. >> they are wandering the streets, going to get hit by cars or in mama's basement. rather than be in mama's basement writing stup
. america has come a long way in 50 years. and the fact that barack obama is president of the united states means we can finish this journey toward what dr. king dreamed about. >> i can't help but think 50 years lighter all the things that martin luther king talked about are in place, racism, poverty, inequality. to see an african-american president up there in front of the lincoln memorial today. think about barack obama who had just turned 2 a few weeks prior when the speech was made. his mother and probably his grandparents were watching it, living in a segregated country where fire hoses were turned on americans. what a moment today. put the politics aside. to see that man 50 years later standing on the same step where martin luther king stood. >> it is amazing. wla last night he had a reception at the white house. when i waps standing in the east room and they brought in dr. king's sister and i saw the picture of george washington and looked at president obama it brought tears to my eyes. i was only 8 years old when the march happened. they never could have dreamed that the president o
to vacation and, of course, so today president obama is set to kick off his week-long vacation, not in the south of france, but in martha's vineyard and that has triggered the expected criticism from corners of capitol hill. of course who are the middle of a five-week vacation. "usa today" is reporting the first family is going to be staying at the $7 million home of a top democratic donor and, of course, bill clinton also vacationed in martha's vineyard during his time in the white house but he famously and i know that gene will remember this and ed will remember this, he famously switched his vacation destination after dick morris took polls to see which vacation spots would be better and they found out that wyoming, surprisingly enough, is better than martha's vineyard. nantucket is better than martha's vineyard but i don't think you'll find that in the poll. "usa today" is remibdsing us this morning franklin roosevelt was criticized for spending time on his yacht. john adams spent seven months in quincy, massachusetts, on his farm in 1797 and actually accused of abdicating
election, they didn't want to vote for president obama, but at least he went out and talked to them, at least he went out and spoke about them. we didn't do that. we marginalized them. >> there is no more important regulatory reform than we can do than to repeal every single word of obama care. and that reaction right there, shows how we win this fight. >> that's it, richard. that's what it's doing. >> what's that? >> don't you think? creating a lot of space for chris christie listening to those guys. no? is that wrong? >> possible. >> all right. we're looking at here -- >> what's happening on the democratic side. >> the group emily's list. >> people creating space for hillary. >> held an event headlined madam president. it's pretty clear who they're talking about. take a listen. >> we have to have millions of people engaged and ready for what will be a pivotal race in america's history and that is about getting everyone excited now, about what i hope will be that moment in 2017 when we all get to say, madam president, to hillary rodham clinton. >> all righty then. as for vice presi
have to do in the era of obama's disaster, we have to get beyond being anti-obama and we have to reconvince people you can have hope in america, we can have a better future. i will bet you for most of you, if you go home in the next two weeks while your members of congress are home, and you look them in the eye and say what is your positive replacement for obama care, they will have zero answer because we are caught up right now in a culture and you see it every single day, where as long as we're negative and as long as we're vicious and as long as we can tear down our opponent, we don't have to learn anything. and so we don't. this is a very deep problem. >> all right. >> jon meacham, you're raising your hand. >> i am raising my hand. i have a question for the retired gentleman from the first district of florida. >> yes, yes. >> willie, this one is for you. >> willie is actually from the first -- >> i'm joking. willie has never -- >> never had -- >> never took an ambien. he's perfect. >> you got hung out to dry yesterday. >> i did. thank you, willie, for that. >> i've never d
of president obama." >> and that's all we have time for this morning. back to you. >> if we did the subtitle of richard's book we would run into chuck's hour as well. >> i want to say something, i have to go on record with this ben affleck thing. this is funny, we make a big deal but he's had a great career comeback with the town and -- >> "argo" so he directs himself and does well. he's had bombs when he does this stuff and we had a huge debate in the office over who has had a better career, him or matt damon because they're so linked. affleck had a better last couple years and this is a disastrous mistake. >> i think he's going to be great. >> really? >> i think it's -- like when daniel craig did james bond no one expected him to pull it off because daniel craig was too serious, reinvented the james bond character. i think affleck will do the same with batman. every woman will be happy. i am be standing in line to see it. >> very quickly here, during the british invasion, the -- no. why are we against affleck? i don't understand. >> when he goes for these big commercial movies he seems to
as president obama. >> yeah, joe. david cameron really shocked because it was defections within his own party that caused ta defeat and if president obama decides to take action against the assad regime it appears he will be doing so without the support of our two strongest european allies. after an eight-hour debate the british parliament voted to reject a limited strike against syria. >> why is it that our allies in the middle east like saudi emirates, qatar, kuwait and others, cannot take military action, why does it fall on us yet again? >> put simply, is it in britain's national interest to maintain an international taboo about the use of chemical weapons on the battlefield, my argument is question it is. >> i take a question from the scottish national party. >> does he know if there are any plans over the last few days for any military action before next week, planned at all against syria? >> i obviously can't discuss the details of potential action in detail in front of this house, but i can tell the house that american president and i have had discussions that have been reported in th
. >> meanwhile the "san francisco chronicle" reports many people uninformed about obama care are falling prey to scams. the scams can take the form of e-mails or phone calls from people pretending to be representatives of the federal government and even solicitors going door to door trying to sign people up for fake medical cards or seeking personal information. what do you think about what's going to happen this fall? >> oh. it's hard to predict. obviously with respect to the budget showdown i don't think the president is going to budge. i don't see why he will or would because this his signature legislation. if they're saying delay the thing for a year i doubt that he would do that. but, you know, the weekly radio address was very interesting in part because we're at this point right now where there is a, you know, sabotaging going on of the plan or an attempt. the biggest move is to get people to burn their obama care cards as if they exist but encourage young people not to sign up, avoid the exchanges as a way to make sure the overall bill is sabotaged. this is a very critical juncture an
cancelinging president obama's planned bilateral talks with his russian counterpart. president obama and vladimir putin were expected to sit down and discuss, among other things, syria's ongoing civil war. the kremlin said it is disappointed by the cancellation. the decision reportedly unanimous by the president's national security team. the icy standoff rekindles a debate between mitt romney and president obama during the 2012 campaign. >> this is to russia that this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe. they fight every cause for the world's worst actors. the idea that he has more flexibility in mind for russia is very, very troubling, indeed. >> governor romney, i'm glad that you recognize that al qaeda is a threat because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> white house -- >> boy, that's a cute line. it's just so dead wrong. it's not even funny. and every single
, and you care about what republicans care about, do you really want barack obama to be president for eight years and appoint supreme court justices for eight years and then have hillary clinton for eight more years and appoint supreme court justices for eight more years? are you going to take such extreme positions you're going to chase voters that want to vote republican, to the democratic party again. >> but in the broader spectrum of things how do you stick to core conservative principles and say what you want to say and still get elected and then as chris christie is pointing out and you always point out too, you got to get elected. you got to win. the ability to win, that's the big deal. but you got to match up what you say to get elected and then what you do once you get elected. we've been talking about boston and what's going on at the rnc, the meeting up there, a source wrote me yesterday, i had sean spicer on, talking about how they're trying to include minority groups more. >> right. >> a source wrote me from d.c. saying just saw the segment with sean spicer had to laugh out lou
shelling in the area. on saturday, president obama reviewed a range of options and possible targets with his national security team. the u.s. has already four destroyers nearby in the mediterranean sea, two within missile range. members of congress are comparing the situation to kosovo calling for surgical strikes using cruise missiles. >> i think we have to respond and i think we have to respond in conjunction with our nato allies, respond much as was done in libya with the nato allies and i think we cannot afford to sit back and wait. >> president assad says this morning, quote, failure awaits the united states if it attacks. comparing a conflict with syria to vietnam. >> well, i don't know. we could just kill you. actually. it wouldn't really be hard to find you and kill you. >> there is that. >> i mean, i don't think it's going to take us -- >> here's reuters. >> showing tepid support at home. only 25% of americans would want the u.s. to intercede, down five points from two weeks ago. andrew roberts writes in the "wall street journal," it takes a barbarian to employ poison gas.
to defund obama care. so ted cruz, he's a player. >> just ask him. >> no. listen, he's going to iowa and people are going -- >> people like him. people are excited about him. >> why? >> i think he taps into -- >> because he's a cade nade yan. >> the sinking sarah palin base, people that were excited about sarah palin, have now transferred to ted cruz. >> and michele bachmann. >> so that is a vibrant part of the republican party, love them or hate them, they look every two to four years for someone that will champion their animosity towards the large federal bureaucracy. >> it's resentment. >> animosity. >> resentment. but it's the sarah palin supporters, the herman cain supporters in a sense the donald trump supporters. you line them all up and that's -- and we have people going out there -- who knows. maybe cruz is going towards 2016 more powerful because instead of tripping over, you know, sarah palin and herman cain and michele bachmann and all these other people, maybe he has that space all to himself. >> but what -- >> and then there's rand paul the libertarian. >> which is so m
and obama care. cory booker took a major step toward becoming new jersey's next u.s. senator with a commanding victory in the state's democratic primary. with 98% reporting, booker won a clear majority with nearly 60% of new jersey democrats supporting the mayor from nuke. >> they say that i, they say that we are being naive. to them i say have you ever met us? do you know where i've been working for the last 17 years? do you know that -- do you know that this is newark, new jersey and we don't do naive? >> he'd do better if he was just holding a baby, doesn't you think? he faces republican steve lonigan who is gearing up for the october special election. >> americorpsy booker has an advantage. he's been anointed by hollywood. the hollywood elite have descended from their penthouse apartments in the belaire hotel, from the heights of the hollywood hills to come to new jersey to tell us who our next u.s. senator will be. >> moving on to awkward now. san diego mayor bob filner. >> our guy. >> yeah. >> how is he still mayor? >> incredible. >> i was going to put this in news you
clinton. senator elizabeth warren and president obama round out the top four. governor christie's position dips when only republicans are polled, drops to eighth behind the list of candidates behind the party's presidential nomination in 2016. first thing is first, what on earth is a temperature meter or whatever we're calling this? >> yes. so they call this the feeling thermometer. we're into feelings and we ask you how do you feel about these politicians. so 0 is stone cold. 100 is burning up. and we saw there the president coming in fourth. the most surprising number in that poll, you mentioned senator elizabeth warren, now the senior senator from massachusetts, coming in at number 3. the other thing that really struck us, how far christie fell when you ask just republicans, interestingly enough number one, when you ask just republicans, paul ryan, mitt romney's running mate and then rand paul, ted cruz, jeb bush, scott walker of wisconsin, all coming in before christie. that points to the governor's real challenge. he has this amazing national popularity and following, on the cover of
composure. >> i had asked her if she wanted to -- if she wanted president obama to come down and campaign for her and that was her answer, was that this campaign is about kentucky. in short, not so much. >> she's trying to separate herself a little bit. senator mcconnell chose to attack alison lundergan gims father, a former state democratic chairman. >> it's getting better and better. >> i want to say how nice it is, how nice it is, to see jerry hunter began balu lun -- lundergan back in the game. like the loyal democrat hi is he's taking orders from the obama campaign on how to run his daughter's campaign. they told him to make a pitch on the internet for the women's vote and he sent a check to anthony weiner. >> what? >> what? >> i don't know, but i love it. >> went after the dad. >> i don't know. i don't know. so anyway, but she seems to have a lot of composure. the tea party candidate what's his name? >> matt bev vin. >> he was sharp too. >> seemed pretty sharp. the question here is how viable are these two against mitch mcconnell. it's a red state and a tea party challenger. not sur
